  1. Can anyone help me create some worksheets in my designs I have walls – Pergolas – Decking and patios and if I open preformatted Report there is nothing with a record that corresponds with the different elements I have built. If I try to create a Custom report I am at a total loss. I’ve tried following Vectorworks Landmark videos, PDF’s and everything in between but still I am out in the cold. Can someone give me a simple instruction 1 – 2 – 3 steps so a greenhorn like me can follow? I am trying to put together a real true presentation together so contractors can quote on. My walls are mainly for raised beds in different sizes, my decks have foundation, weed membranes, joists, Noggins and posts, and my patios have foundation, mortar bed and paving to name but a few. So, apart from areas and sizes I need costs per item so I can keep an eye on a client’s budget throughout the design concept stage. I would appreciate some help. Many thanks KenH First Garden Design
  2. Many thanks Pat. I'll follow your logic. I did try the shell solid but no deal. Then I can work out how to send it up on its point. Kind regards Ken
  3. I need to sculpture a die and stand it on its point. Its needs to be hollow as I need a light inside can any one help
  4. Hi. Here are 2 images. One with paving stabs that need duplicating. The second is one that I have moved away from the lawn with the second near it. Both now are wireframe and to get one that has render I have to draw and set the render again.
  5. Can anyone tell me how in 2020 Landmark I can get it to show an image of an object in OpenGL as it can in fast Renderworks. My design just wont. Ken H Greenhorn
  6. I need to create a new door leaf and I cannot locate the sequence I am to follow. I would appreciate ion someone could list the complete sequence I am to follow starting from drawing the leaf design to saving it as a symbol in VW door leaf file. Thanks
  7. Peter. Many thanks. I have generated your image into my VW Door Custom folder and was able to open it up and set it into the main file. My sincere thanks for this. I always inform trainers when I attend training sessions that I don't have a short term memory. I find it very frustrating that this is never believed and when I have to ask a simple question a bit later it is very embarrassing to me. I appreciate your help in this and I cannot remember why I created the door from a hardware object. It may have been because I tried everything else and this was the last straw. On the Top/Plan to Front view question. The 101 I found the door depicted was on the front elevation so I followed this; my fault. I will now go and create some new doors with simple designs to get this under my belt. My sincere thanks for your help in this. Kindest regards Ken
  8. Hello Peter My sincere thanks. It is good of you to help. I have attached a smaller design to show the door and another VW of the door leaf. I haven't sent the main file as it is very large. I have had to send the main file, although the cut down version as a dxf as I cannot upload the vw file. I hope you can download these My sincere wishes Ken Door Trial.dxf Door Leaf Symbol.vwx
  9. Hi Cipes. I am not sure whether its me being old but I hate to say it that I have tried and tried to follow your comments and whether I try to alter a leaf design or make a new one I still cannot complete it so it can be inserted into the door frame. I'll keep trying as I know your instructions are complete. If I get it to work I will celebrate with champagne. Kindest regards Ken
  10. My sincere thanks Cipes. I will try this way. Its always confusing when working ways change, or if one is like me one losses short term memory. I'll come back once achieved. Kindest regards Ken
  11. I am trying to create a new leaf for a door that is not available in Landmark 2019. I have tried to follow the 101 but this is demonstrated in an older VW and I am becoming very confused. I would appreciate if someone could set out the sequence I can follow?
  12. HI J I have been through all these up to now but they still don't allow me to set a pad, whatever system down below the house line. Perhaps it's me. On a small point, I remember in 2015 in a PDF file from the UK it was pointed out that one starts at 100 feet as VW doesn't like negative measurements. Will this be the case. My front door is naturally zero then the steps down and especially the garage beneath is down to 2500mm minus. Just a thought. Perhaps it would be good if I have a 'Buddy' somewhere in the world. Mine is ken@firstgardendesign.co.uk
  13. Hi J. I hope this is your Title. Many thanks for your help. I will go through it now to find into work for me. This entire site is in negative and I wondered if that was the reason it wasn't working. I'll let you know how I get on. Its a pity your'e not in the UK. The only help one gets here to give comment only if one is charged £500.00. Not good for someone with lose of major memory. Kindest regards Ken@
  14. I must be the oldest greenhorn in the business but after returning from a mental illness, consequently loosing my short term memory/ Although using Landmark since 2004 I have totally forgotten how to generate the pads etc., to set out an underground car garage beneath the wall of the house. Can anyone let me know how I do this is 2019 landmark. My sincere thanks. Ken H
  15. I have been using Landmark for some years but now I am having a major issue that Landmark does not generate an image within the boundaries of the Screen shot. I have always followed the same procedure so I would love to hear why this is happening now. Here is my sequence. Here is the sequence I have followed for years. 1. Screen top plan 2. 2. Click Renderworks Camera 3. camera set then to where I want it to aim 4. Activate Camera 5. Set Camera Height and Look at height as necessary The screen now shows the four corners of the viewport. 6. The 4 Blue “L” corners that will be the size of the viewport are showing on the screen 7. I go to ‘View’ then ‘Create Viewport. In every image up and until Monday I then generate the 3D image within the ‘L’ corner boundaries. 8. Until now. I get a full screen image, which takes 3 times as long to generate especially when I want the image at high resolution. Please tell me what is wrong.
